Bravas Bar de Tapas
Bravas serves traditional Spanish dishes along with tapas-style dining and has been named in the Top 100 Bay Area Restaurants in 2013, 2014 and 2015 by the San Francisco Chronicle. Sit out on the covered patio any time of the year and enjoy a chilled Tapa of Salmorejo soup or tuna belly salad. Join a group of friends indoors at Bravas while dining on a warm Tapa of bacon wrapped dates with blue cheese, warm bacalao on wood grilled flatbread or the Pocket Creak Duck Egg served sunnyside up with Chorizo cracklings and toast. Other menu items include Monterey Calamari served with salsa verde, blackened lamb porterhouse or the skirt steak with red onion marmalade and Valdeón Cheese.
Bravas offers a large selection of local and Spanish wines, sangrias and Spain inspired cocktails that will not only quench your thirst but will complement your food perfectly and authentically.
Octopus, Fingerlings, Smoked Paprika, and Olives
Fried Potatoes, Spicy Tomato Sauce, Allioli

This reminded us of an experience we had in Barcelona Spain. We had many tapas which were all excellent and the service was also excellent. We sat outside on the patio around 7:00 p.m. so it was neither too hot nor too cold. The drinks are also amazing!
Delicious tapas plates. Friendly server. Outdoor venue is casual and comfortable.
A fun place with a lot of food choices. We enjoyed all the dishes. The patio is nice but a little crowded. The busboy was a little too quick and took some food and utensils before we were finished. Made us feel rushed to turn the table. There’s a lot of choices to dine so we likely won’t rush back. Still it’s very good food for a fair price.
Server was wonderful. I wish I knew her name! Music from bar was strange, however. Instead of rock noise, how about Spanish guitar and the like. Makes more sense, don't you think.
Food and service was great! Karina our waitress was very nice and helpful. Recommend going
I had later reservations and came in earlier. They were extremely accommodating and we got in!
We didn’t order right. The salad was delicious, the sangria was just ok. The pig ears, had a sauce on them that was too tart. Just the pig ears well done with an alioi sauce would be better.
Fun restaurant, good service, I just need to choose better items.
Great atmosphere, amazing food, delicious cocktails. My only complaint are the flies buzzing around everywhere.
We had a wonderful experience!!!! Will definitely be back and will tell our friends.
Everything was so delicious. It was a true explosion of food deliciousness!!!!!!!!
Love this spot. It’s been a favorite for years - great food, great set up and staff is always friendly. Can’t wait to go back already!
Great food, terrific service, awesome vibe. Just a fantastic meal and experience.
Delicious food! Would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone.
The best Spanish Tapas dishes!
Every dish was next level. The grilled Octopus was out of this world. We will back!
Always my favorite place in town! Locals and regulars
Paella presented and tasted much more like a jambalaya- not nearly enough saffron. All other plates we ordered were just ok.
Server was fantastic which saved the evening from being a complete disappointment.
WILLI’S seafood is a much better option for this type of meal.
Great variety of tapas,fun atmosphere, good service!
The food and service was fantastic. Will definitely be back next time we are in Healdsburg. So many other things on the menu I would want to try!
Food and service was great. The server was happy to be there and knew the menu well. I gave 4 stars for ambience because they first seated us in direct sun with out an umbrella. However, the server moved us as soon as she had an empty table.
Loved everything! Especially the octopus. Great meal in a friendly place.
Great food, excellent service.
Great ambiance, service and food. Thank you!
Unique and amazing food. Fantastic experience overall. Just prepare to dress appropriately if it's a hot day on the patio.
We had a reservation for 6 and were seated in the window where flies were swarming. When we noticed an outside table we asked to move there but were told it was reserved. Well we had a reservation and were there, the other party was not! We did get moved to a table under a fan, which did help alleviate the fly problem. The food came out quickly and was delicious, as was the sangria! I chose this restaurant because one in our party is gluten-free. She was able to find dishes to suit her.
Wonderful food, and amazing service. Perfect outside dining area.
Amazing food. Amazing service. Amazing setting. The best time. Period.
Everything was great except for the flies 🙃🪰
The food is amazing. So worth the splurge. I can't stop from ordering more dishes! Each one is incredible. And the drinks are delicious too.
An outstanding place to eat.The menu selection is creative and delivers tasty items. The staff was outstanding explaining the unusual items on the menu. A must stop for anyone visiting Healdsburg
Great food and great service! We had a reservation for 1:15 and were seated on time. Excellent selection on the menu and perfect advice from our server. Excellent value for the entire experience.
Server extremely knowledgeable regarding food allergies and which items were safe.
Great place. Excellent choices with wide variety of menu items. Fine wines and drinks. We highly recommend check this place out.
Love tapas! Loved their turn on same!
We love dining at Bravas and tasting all the Spanish tapas the menu offers. Their patio is the perfect place to enjoy a lovely lunch.
Today we started off with Duncan’s mushrooms that were so flavorful. Then, we had the lamb burgers that were perfectly cooked. We also enjoyed the crispy bacalao cigarillos with Romesco allioli. Of course, we had to order the paella that is as good as the paella we ate in Spain.
We are locals and continually find Bravas to be an excellent restaurant to patronize. The staff is always attentive and the Spanish wines great. We highly recommend dining here for a fun experience.
The goat cheese toast was amazing. On several dishes we had, if they had held back on half of the olive oil drizzle, it would be much better.
The food, service and atmosphere...are one of our favorites in Northern California. We love the restaurant and highly recommend it.
Dined on the back porch in scorching heat. Even though s ate dinner the shade, the fans only moved hot air. But can’t fault Bravas for the weather. Can blame them for delicious food that took our minds off the boiling day. Everything was a delight, including the sangria made in house. Try the scallops, the spinach ( a staple of every Stark restaurant), clams Nd crispy pig ears. Finish up with hot rum balls and soft serve ice cream. Bring your appetite (and your wallet) and enjoy.
Incredible small plates, however, we visited on a pretty hot day. Even though we were seated inside, it was very uncomfortable and the flies were crazy.
Try the croquettes and curried cauliflower. The tropical thunder is yummy as well!
